Yesterday was a great Jay for ''us centennial people." the citizens of the American republic. The heavens rniiVd. the naval parade was a magnificent spectacle for a nation without a Davy, and the ball was ??perfectly elegant, don't too know." To-tlajr the commemorative proceedings hare tc?n more f<rnm< and thoughtful. Orator and poet and preacher have declared the lemons ?which suggest themselves on the hundredth anniversary of the inauguration of the first President. Parades, balls, banquets. and fire works give place for a time to a considrt-ation of the meaning of all the acts of celebration. The birth of a nation under the constitution. George Washington the President inaugurated on the day we celebrate, and the constitution itself, the great instrument upon whose lines the republic has steadily developed during its growth of a century, arc the texts of the occa sion. Channcey M. Depew has paid eloquent tribute to the man. the instrument, and the na tion to be commemorated. All over the land, in Washington as in the other cities, the same inspiring thought* have received utterance from the orators of the day. Centennial reflections involve always a point ing with pride to the growth of the thing com m< morat* d daring the period of its existence. The material di velnpmcnt of America in its first hundred years was more fully and more irppropriately illnsft'ib-.l in the centennial cele bration of The existence and growth of the government, formally -< t in motion in 17S1?, are especially to be remembered to-day. The miserable weakness of the bond holding together the federated colonies, the difficulties in the way of allaying section.1. colonial and individual jealousies ? a order to establish a stronger central government, a more compact and closely knit republic, and tho grand part played by Washington in overcoming th. se difficulties should never be forgott' n. Th-1 constitution Mtting forth the framevork of government lipon which the contend n:? interests compro mised. i? worthy in its r< suits of the eulogies which Gladstone has bestowed upon it. It has the glory of outlining a republic which has en dured with mere..sin-; strength and prosperity for the period of a hundred years. By providing for its own amendment, and for the admission of mric states on an ? qual footing with the orig inal band. .1 flexibility has been attained which lias permitted peaceful revolutions to take piece, altering entirely the make-up of tlie nation, and removing from section to section the seat of political,power;?revolutions which could not otherwise l?o accomplished except through bloodshed :md violent disruption of the existing governmt nt. The republic win fortunate in its p.per government, and fortu nate iu the men ? ho first administer**, it acd gave meaning to it" words; and the difficulties which the government h is since encountered, the eonvul-ions of ci\ ll war itself, have in their results only solidified the repnblic. strength ened the nationat power, md aided to estab lish immovably tl ? more 'perfeet union wblch th. ? Constitution w n d* M?jn? d to form. The Star's cut. portraying the features of the murder* 1 woman whose body was found near liennin,;. rendered substantial aid in the identification of the woman, mid the public service win- h th< publication was designed to accomplish I w..s thus performed. U;i<* of Trl Stabs cotcmporaries, which .failed to secure a cut from this photograph, suffers a severe bruising of delicate sensibilities from its publication in The Star. The feier ot a murdered woman is not a thing of beauty, and in view of th-:' grew-ouie results ai the attempted reproduction by oar cot.-Mpor.try of living tacts, it i- doubtless just as w< II tbot in tins case it got left by the evening papers. In order to aid the detectives and render the public a service by securing the i.leTUWb-ation of the woman. tb>- reproduction jf tier Ieatur< s wemM need to be circulated univt rsally in th* District, and this, of course, con! I be *1 >ne speedilv only through Tits St%!:. Tie.n. a?am. an exact re production of the face after Tuk SiAU'sxecog iu/ed superior methods wvmld be essential to this identification. Ifnquestionably, then, &s the reasons which actuated and justified the publication by The Star do not apply in the case of o-ir cotemporary, the latter did wisely to retrain from attempting to copy The Stak's cet. It will contribute sufficiently to the cham ber of honors by tlie ghastly sacrifice of living men .nd women oti its pages, causing them to wish that they were dead, without resoTtmg to n caus< lees and unj?ardonable mutilation of one already 'murdered by som? body,* Nt. Thfe west purposes to have a hand in the can vass to fill the place made vacant by the retire ment of Mr. Walker from the interstate com merce commission. It wants, as it claims in its memorials to the Pri-ulent. a man who is "thoroughly acquainted with the people and the needs of this great region." The west has already two mt inhere of the commission, and able- m-n at that, in Judge Cooley and William R. Morrison. The commission was formed not wholly for the benefit of the west, but with a view to protecting the interests of all sections equally; and it is as important that eastern corporations should be kept in order, and east ern capitalists who have invested in western railroads protected, as that the western farm ers should absorb all the attention of the gov ernment supervisors. The west is a great and growing region, and deserves her full share of national consideration, but tile President Wll> be quite justified in keeping the commission Lai ? need between the east, west, and soul>,. , it was originally constituted. Nothing that is too severe can be said of the tecal P'?st-oSce quarters. So lay on, gentlemen of the Post-OSice department, and r ee to it that at the next session of Congress Vie citv is sup jflied with better quarters iu a building of its own. A correspondent of the Hartford Post says: "John Hay. tl.e new ed\t'r,r of the TrP/une, has long pined to return to profession. It will give him an opportr.n/'iy ?f living in Sew York, which for such a it,&r, is fur more desirable than Washington. t /*???#?denng the fact that Mr. Hay s retirement from active journalism was entirely his V'jrantarv ?~t. and that, having the world in w'^Vch to chooee, he deliberately set tled upon tVaahingtou as the most agreeable ?*ty to li^. iu. he will probably be as much in tbre4t?-d in this bit of news as the general pub lic.

Four division*?Our $10 grade, $15, $20, and from $25 to $40 grade*. Let's talk a little about each. Seeing is believing-. Our middle Seventh street window haa rot a display of these $10 Suits. When you're passing by turn your $10 head, catch a glimpse. and we'll wager you'll have to stop. They'll charm you. We say they are the equals of anything in town at $13. We mean it. They're cot, made, and SOTS, trimmed aa creditably as any suits in any body's $15 (rrade. The patterns are new, bright, and cheery, and the fabrics have got the "stuff that wears" in them. Sa-ks or Cut aways. Of course if we make our $10 Suits the running mates of everybody else's $15 grade, of necessity our $15 ones must approach the $18 and $ :0 majority. That's what they've $15 dorir. We want to mention oue specialty, the Laverton Twills. Just a comfortable weight. Lined all the way through, or skele ton backs. Berg" taped. No very light effects. SUITS. Run rather to the medium and dark colors. Sack* or Cutaways. Besides these a hundred other styles. '1 he extreme patterns and "in betweens." With Saks and Company behind every irannent. The $'.'0 grade has got some of those Irish Woolens in it that were woven for our exclu sive use. The fabrics were imported?but the $'.'0 handiwork that has shaped them tip is "home talent"?done under our eyes. Plaids, Strips and Mixtures?a little different arrangement of them?bringing out new effects. Cassi SflTS. meres, Cheviots, Tweeds, Worsteds and Homespuns besides?in r'.ain colors or loud and passive patterns. Something for every body's taste. The Fabrics, the Trimmings and embellish ment* that go to make an elegant Custom Suit are in the $25 to $40 grade. There isn't a weave too fine, nor a conception too re lined for our u?t right here. 'Twas a venture a year or two ago. Would the old prejudices FROM against "Keady-made" Clothing 'hang on, or could they be broken down? Down they went. Why shouldn't they* When a man's $25 own brother couBhi't note a difference on him between one of our $40 Suits and a $70 made-to-measure one, it's time prejudice was TO thrown over. All the line Foreign and Do mestic Cloths in plain and fancy patterns. The latest novelties in the wide and narrow $40 Wales -all put tog>-tlier to stay and to give satisfaction. We haven't said a word about tho fit of any of the Suits. W"? ?ov it atto-jtthcr?litre?note. There's not a chanee that they u on't. Then must.
